What is Disney World’s Purple Wall?
So, what exactly is Walt Disney World’s Purple Wall? Originally, the Purple Wall existed as a plain, lilac purple wall, sitting comfortably between Tomorrowland and Main Street USA in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park. The original purple wall provided a plain backdrop for visitors to take photos whilst visiting the theme park. With the incredible aesthetic surrounding you whilst visiting Walt Disney World you simply must document your trip with a million photos, must you not?
Quickly catching on to this increasing trend, Walt Disney World Resort went with the craze- they upgraded the wall! Keeping with the lilac purple theme, Disney has enhanced the wall’s photogenic qualities. Now, the wall is decorated in a geometric design and a multitude of shades of purple and lilac, now seemingly even more so perfect for taking photos and having fun with your friends and family! So, pop on your Walt Disney World Resort merchandise and get ready to grin from Mickey ear to Minnie ear in front of Disney’s Purple Wall!
Where is the Purple Wall Located?
Want to know a secret? I know the exact location of Disney’s Purple Wall! It may still take you a minute or two to discover this hidden gem with no signposts and rarely overwhelming crowds, but here is where to start.
The Purple Wall is located right by the entrance to Tomorrowland in Disney’s Magic Kingdom. Specifically, it is tucked around a corner on a little walkway connecting to the Magic Kingdom’s infamous ‘Main Street USA’, sandwiched between the ‘Monsters Inc Laugh Floor’ and the ‘Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant’. So, that explains why most visitors do not find the wall by chance. It is stuck between a rock and a hard place…I mean a laugh floor and a terrace restaurant!
Even though Walt Disney World Resort is very much aware of the Purple Wall and its popularity amongst visitors, the location is not pointed out on any of the theme park maps or held within any of the official Disney information provided at the theme park. So, it is best to have a look at some of the fan-made maps that directly point to the location of this iconic wall. These can be found super easily with a quick google search. You’ll come to know rather quickly that many people look for the Purple Wall during their Walt Disney World vacation!
You Can Even Buy Purple Wall Merchandise…

This new merchandise is not fan-made as you may assume, oh no!
